No it is not necessary. There is no caffeine in rooibos so it is fine to give the regular rooibos tea to your little girl.

I don''t think their is any harm in giving you baby normal rooibos tea (I could be wrong)....but I''d like to mentioned that I wouldn''t give her too much though as I''ve seen first hand (family friends daughter) that too much plain rooibos tea can stain you babies teeth....

I''m sure the Pead can give you more helpful advice.

hi there, my baby is 10months old. I do not know whether its bad for her at this age, but being a first time mom I was also scared that maybe its not good for her. I bought purity''s rooibos tea she drinks it, seems not to enjoy it though, but a while back a lady working with me her little one is 18months old, suggested a try Freshpak Junior - there is the plain rooibos, as well as peach and apricot and strawberry and vanilla flavours - my baby seems to love the peach and apricot! but if you are still scare try the purity 1.
